(S/E) From the front door, cross the narrow road immediately in front of the pub, and turn right along the A5 past the roundabout. Cross the Menai Bridge via the right-hand footway with spectacular views along the Strait over Church Island and towards Britannia Bridge.

(1) At the far end of the bridge, turn right and follow the road past a brick lodge-house on the right. Continue over speed bumps and past some industrial units to a further lodge-house, this one in stone and on the left. Pass between the gateposts, then shortly take a path on the left that runs between railway and road.

(2) When it rejoins the road, continue past the greenhouses and other buildings of the Botanic Garden on the left and the circular arch of the Chinese Garden on the right. When the track forks at the entrance to Treborth Playing Fields, turn right onto a path with the open, grassed area of the gardens to your right. Keep straight on at a junction of paths, heading downhill through the trees. When you reach the coast path above the Menai Strait, turn right; ignore any turnings into the wood on your right. Pass the Peace Statue then, above a bench by a small stream, follow the path as it curves right, away from the water, and up to the Lucombe Oak. Beyond the tree, rejoin the entrance drive.

(2) Turn left and retrace your steps past the gatehouses and industrial units back to the A5, and turn left to cross the Menai Bridge again back to the Anglesey Arms.(S/E)
